My First Giveaway!

If I haven't already made this obvious - I love buying household and kitchen items.  The type of purchases that are not absolutely necessary, but are oh so much fun.  I was contacted about hosting a giveaway (!!) for CSN Stores - a compilation of over 200 websites where you can basically order anything - cookware, house decor, bar furniture, and so much more.  I've already checked out the site and there are so many things I want.
So here's how it works - the lucky winner will get a one-time-use $40 gift certificate that can be used at any of the sites.  My only stipulation is that you post about whatever you buy (and how you use it) on your blog, or as a guest post on mine if you don't have one.  
How to enter - you will get one entry for each of the following:
* Follow my blog - leave a comment letting me know if you are a new follower, or if you already follow me
* Leave a comment telling me which item(s) you want the most from the websites
* Leave a comment telling me if there's a recipe from my blog that you're dying to try out
* Post about my giveaway on your own blog - leave a comment with the link
The deadline is 5/9 - I will pick a winner using a random number generator
Please pass this onto your friends!
Good luck!

I really want to try your creamy spinach pasta recipe. Looks so yummy and that's saying something because most foods don't look really appetizing right now since I'm pregnant. :)

The brocolli and cheese casserole sounds great.

I have a large crockpot, what I would like is a smaller one. They have several to choose from.

Sarah said...

I am dying to try to make that flour-less chocolate cake that you made for passover. From the CSN store I would love more glassware for entertaining or some storage containers so that I could keep my flour and sugar on the counter instead of high up in the cabinet.

Jen said...

Thank you for entering! I'm going to give everyone until midnight to enter, and then I'll pick a winner tomorrow. I just wanted to respond to a few comments.
First - I have to say that I didn't come up with the name of Passover Crack! Smitten Kitchen came up with that, but I have been making that recipe for years and years.
katidyd - I tried to figure out how to add email signups and I couldn't! If anyone has any tips/hints, I would appreciate it. And if you live nearby I would love to give you some amish starter.
Thank you so much everyone for checking out my blog, and I hope to hear from all of you in the future!
